Whilst we're on the subj. of early TWP ... I had originally dismissed the
band after hearing "Lonely Is An Eyesore", since I considered "Cut the
Tree" to be the worst track on the comp, even duller than the predictable
Colourbox track. So I ignored them until 1992 when a friend lent me his
copy of "Queer" and I was thrown for a very pleasurable loop.

hear about those albums is the highest of praise, but I really find that
song booooring...

Funny, I've seen a lot of posts like these.  However, I must say that I like
"Queer" and "Funky Little Demons" a lot more than their older music.  The
only other one I like as much is their first album.   I don't know, I just
couldn't ever get into their slow, dark kind of music.  Maybe it's because
it's not dark enough; it's sort of halfway between slowish pop-music and
goth (weird combo, I know, but that's about the only description I can think
of at the moment).  I much prefer the more electronic sound they acquired on
their last two albums.

There are alot of problems with our darling little alainis. primarily
that she is the equivalent of Tiffany or at lewast conceptually the Monkeys.
She is some producer's my fair lady. She was playing mall gigs and doing
line dance/cheerleader type music (ala gloria estefan) until she was
"discovered" and turned into the alternaqueen that so eloquently made
"female rage" acceptible to mainstream america. Too bad it was a male
producer's vision of female rage marketted to the mainstream america, so
that teenage flannel boys can fantasize about a woman running her nails

not very likely....  if Warren actually read this, I'm sure he'd be pretty
ticked.  I don't know if you've heard any of the new stuff or not...  I've
seen two of their performances so far where all they played was new songs...
 and neither performance was 'country' oriented.  In fact if you can describe
it as anything, the closest thing would be "folk"... and THATS stretching it

it is with 90% certainty that HNIA will appear in Chicago providing Warren

Subject: hisnameisaLIVE/Defever-fest '95 tapes


just a public service announcement...

to the 2 people to whom I still owe tapes to, they'll be on their way shorty.
 In receiving so many orders, as you know I ran out of blanks and it's been
rather difficult to find the preferred TDK SA100's around here lately.  I
prefer them not only because of the higher quality, but also the length... 2
of the shows run just under 50 min... which using a 90min, it would get cut
short, and wouldn't want to do that to you, so the search continues...

and to anyone else is interested, I am still making the tapes, but would
prefer it if you could send the $5 and tape instead of the whole $7 to cover
the cost of the tape, as they are hard to find.  If you can only manage the
$7, I'll still accept it, but it might take me a bit longer to get to it.

i'm sure you will all enjoy the quality of the tape as a few on the list have
attested to.

any further questions, please respond privately~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Scala

Hello!  You might be wondering why you're being sent a mini fanzine about
the band, Scala.  Well, to explain the whole story - there was once a ban=
d
called Seefeel, who released two albums, quite a few singles, and then
quickly disappeared before our eyes.  Little did we know what was brewing
in the studio of Daren, Sarah, and Justin.  Since the summer of 95, they
have been recording loads of songs as Scala, and have recently signed to
Too Pure Records.=20

Your address was on the Seefeel mailing list (either you wrote the band o=
r
you sent in your "please can I receive information about Seefeel" card)
which is why you have received this letter.=20

So I am Sheila, the person in charge of informing all the fans and runnin=

this information service.  From now on I plan to run this service properl=

the most important topic - MUSIC!!  Scala are releasing two singles on To=

and will probably go very quickly.  However, a compilation of the two
singles will be out on a CD in the late Spring!  That will be available b=

mail order from Too Pure, but as the release date approaches, I will let
you know full details.=20

I'm really excited about Scala's releases, as their demos are sounding
supurb.  Their sound ranges from moody dub to banging bass with a bit of
hardcore sex!  But I think that guitarist Daren Seymour describes Scala
perfectly, as "music for late nite gardening!"=20

Hello and welcome to the Scala fanzine/information sheet!  We hope you
enjoy it. We'd just like to say a few words about the band, our
forthcoming releases, and Seefeel.  Scala originally started as a side
group to Seefeel, as it was decided after our second album, Succour, to
take an extended break from the band Seefeel and explore what we wanted t=
o
do musically.  So Justin, Sara, and myself begain working on Scala.  I
feel that this band is more musically diverse and less disciplined, we do
whatever we feel ike!  I think it's more interesting interesting for us t=
o
work this way and makes for some exciting tracks.  We hope you think so
too.  The first two single releases are very different from each other.=20
however, the big beats are right to the fore.  Old habits die hard, but
the tracks are song orientated with a generally more upfront sound.  As
Seefeel goes, we are planning to record together again, but not for
awhile.  Watch this space!=20

Subject: Bel Canto - Magic Box review


Bel Canto - Magic Box

Well, after 4 (or more, I can't remember anymore;) years it finally arrived;
the new album from Bel Canto.
It has been out for several days already, but obviously I needed some
days to listen to it before I wrote a review.
The album starts and ends with Magic Box 1 and 2, respectively, which
are just some sort of jingles really to catch up with the title of
the album, as they sound just like those magic boxes, if you know what
I mean.
Then in sequential order these tracks are revealed:
-'Magic Box 1' opens the box.
-'In Zenith' is a promising start. Eastern influenced. The song develops
 really well, and has a nice instrumental fiddle section near the end,
 before it's tuned down again.
-Then comes 'Freelunch in the Jungle' which is very far from the Bel Canto
 we use to know. Very up-beat, jungle rhytms. I haven't really got used
 to it. It even has a 'yo' in it from some male rapper dude.
 I remember hearing that this song actually developed from an outcast
 to a commercial which Nils was to do the music for.
-'Rumour' sees Bel Canto almost entering the world of commercial euro-dance
 music. It's a very accessible song, destined to be the hit song of the
 album, like 'Shimmering, Warm and Bright' from their previous album.
 But hey, I can stand it.
-'Sleepwalker' is the return of Bel Canto as we've learned to know them.
 Rather slow rhythms put Annelis voice more in focus. Spiced with occasional
 acoustic guitar, and an atmospheric synth-layer almost unhearable in the
 background.
-'Bombay' developed from excerpts of the orchestral piece they wrote some
 years ago, and which name I just can't remember at the moment, although
 I know it so bloody well. Anyway, it's good, but i think it worked better
 before they reworked it. As the name implies, the songs is heavily eastern
 influenced.
-The next one 'Paradise' is a beauty. Again a very accessible song.
 Built around a drum loop they probably got from the father of Anneli's
 child, Per Martinsen aka Mental Overdrive. Beautiful and sad at the same
 time.
'Didn't you know it' is another upbeat song. Dunno why, but it reminds me
 of Bjork, although it sounds more like a straight dance song.
-'Big Belly Butterfly' slows it down again. Nut much to say about it really,
 except that I somewhat unconsciously connect this song to the Norwegian
 TV-series 'Butterfly', which is a soap-opera that totally blows away
 all I've seen of foreign competitors when it comes to bad acting and
 unrealistic dialogue. (Making it an awesome comedy;)
-'Kiss of Spring' is an acoustic-countryish tune. As with 'Didn't you know
 it' and 'Bombay' this song was one of the first songs recorded for the
 album, or atleast I'd heard all of these a long time before this album
 was released. It's a nice camp-fire song, but everybody can do this can't
 they?
-'Magic box 2' closes the box.

Conclusion please: This IS a good album, but not an awesome one.
 Although it is the departure from the synthetic Bel Canto we used to
 know, introducing a Bel Canto with a more natural sound. (..and
 heavy production-wise), this has removed much of the mysticism and
 arctic coldness which used to make them so unique.
 (Get Biosphere back in you hear me?)


I'll be back with another review in 10 years when their next album is
released ;)

Oh boy, I just bought the lovelife CD and saw that misleading cover.
It's some black guy in a greenhouse holding up a Lush sign.  Now maybe
theres a lot of rap people out there who would dig the cover and buy the
CD, but then realize it ain't rap.  Anyway, pretty sneaky advertising.

1st of all, I don't believe it's exploitation if a person is willing to pay
the amount since it's obviously worth that much to that person.  One person
might be willing to pay only $60 for a "13 Year Itch", whereas I for example
would be willing to pay as much as $80 or even $85 based on what I've seen it
for, how often I've seen one (both personally, over the net for sale, etc.)

Secondly....  since when was this ever a free CD???  I think you're getting
"Mai Pen Rai" confused with "...think I'm getting the hang of it", "Facing
the Wrong Way" and the "No Balls" samplers.

Mail*Link(r) SMTP               Cindytalk SF redux

cindytalk came to the bay area, but as grimaceSCU@aol.com has confessed,
the planning was a shambles, and 3 of the four planned gigs evapourated
into mists of disappointment and confusion.
i'll save my venting at him for a private forum.


i went to the show on the campus of Santa Clara university.  the performance
was to take place in the student union.  it felt like that scene in
"Spinal Tap" where the band playes a gig at a holiday inn for a bunch of
air force people.  it had all the atmosphere and mystery of a gig in a mall
pizza hut.  less than 20 people managed to decode the vague clues about the
show and solve the labyrinth of SCU to actually brave it.

trance to the sun opened and played for about 45 minutes.  they are
a two piece from santa barbara: boy on effects-laden guitar swirl and
girl singing ethereally with some backing tapes and drum machine.
musically, there was a fair amount of early cure, some love spirals
downwards, and a smidge of love lies crushing.  interesting, but not
compelling.

next was astronOut, a forgettable local attempt at ambient industrial/mild
noise creation.  they seemed like a bunch of boys out of the garage
for the first time with their electronic toys. i'll pass.


there was some doubt about whether cindytalk would even attempt to play.
finally cindytalk took the platform.  gordon was wearing a shiny metallic
dress and a silk blouse.  gordon went directly into "the first
time ever..."  his vocals were beautiful, despite of the horrid PA which
was incapable of producing a steady, undistorted sound.  without pause,
the band erupted into "muster", and gordon's smooth voice became a
harsh invocation.  after muster they played 2 new songs which sounded
like natural progressions from the wappinschaw sound.  the percussionist
was using a steering wheel and some metal tools to provide chromed clanking
sounds, david ros was whipping up some wonderful guitar noise, the chap
on samplers seemed busy supplying spooky samples and misc sounds.  this was
the background to gordon, who knelt before his notebook and read poetry
in his rich scottish accent.
this went on for about 5 minutes and then the band left the stage.

afterwards, i got to talk to gordon.  he was good natured, friendly and
only mildly frustrated. he just said that they felt that the environment
was appropriate for improvisation, and they stopped when they had
accomplished all they could there.  when i asked about the booking madness
he commented that the east coast portion of the tour had gone very smoothly,
and that things had completely unravelled on the west coast.

fortunately, cindytalk will be returning to san francisco this friday,
here is the information I got from the Involved Designs people
who are running the Cindytalk american tour... please go.

there will be a show in SF this friday, March 8th.
it will be hosted by the "A Winter Gone By" folks at the Maritime Hall
in SF (450 Harrison Street near 1st). Last weekend the evening was called
"Labyrinth." It should be 18 and up.

So...

>>In 1982 all 4AD 12"s sported this 'Two nude women' picture (I don't think
they are wrestling!). All LP's had the same pic, but 'distorted' (i.e.
inversed) And the 7" featured those 2 guys. The full picture can be found on
the frontcover of the 'Natures Mortes' LP (why didn't they use the full
picture of the women?)<<

Now I'm sure this isn't in the FAQ, but does anyone know who the people are
on these labels? Yes, it sounds like a silly question, but on the "Male"
labels and the cover art of NATURES MORTES, on of them looks very much like
Ivo. Could this be Ivo and Peter Kent? Anyone.

Also, anyone know the origins of this little design concept? Is there some
basis for it other than it just being mysterious and/or pretentious.

And, yes, call me irrepressibly heterosexual, but the two women for the front
would have been my preferred choice too, but hey. Maybe they had really big
butts.

Nah, Alanis isn't that cheesy. I'm not _defending_ Alanis, mind you. :)
But even America's bankrupt pop culture would never have given the likes
of Lita Ford album sales of 6 million!

Once again I'd say she's this year's Tracy Chapman. Mega-hit debut,
darling of the critics and the Grammys. Watch her next album stall at 2
million and her third struggle to hit 1 million. Remember how Tracy was a
one-hit wonder who after two years was on the "where are they now?"
roster (though she seems to be crawling back up these days). Among the
fickle mass audience, the period from "next big thing" to "buzz bin" to
multiplatinum to "been there done that" is getting shorter and shorter.
It used to be years and now it's months. See how sophomore albums by
Green Day and Blind Melon have been greeted with apathy. I await with
glee the demise of the Presidents of the USA! (Christ, what was anybody

Frankly I
think artists should have enough sense by now to know that sweeping the
Grammys is a sure-fire way to torpedo your career. "Hey, didn't Milli

They are clearly derivative, but derivative of some excellent bands (Wire, Stranglers, Pretenders, Blondie, etc.) whose sounds have lain dormant for a while. And they wrote some of the best pop songs I heard all last year. While I'm at it I'm also confused about the hatred of Alannis Morisette. Granted she's pretty mainstream by our standards, but her songs are decent and she has if nothing else made female rage acceptable to mainstream America, for which I applaud her.

you mean people who are hesistant to fawn all over some of 4AD's recent
releases?  If so, then I would agree I am either a) a close-minded
individual, or b) that I buy music based on its appeal to me, not solely
on the label on which it is issued.

I think a lot of people here already have taken this into consideration.
Observe the number of posts, here on the 4AD list, which are concern with
groups/artists not on 4AD.  This is pretty much a non-issue on this list, as
far as I can see...

weekend.  The jury is still out on this one.  It's not as instantly appealing
as "Mustt Mustt", but that doesn't necessarily mean it's bad.  It sounds
less "ambient" than their previous collaboration, and slightly more
contemporary.  I'll post a more complete review later.  Hey cz, weren't you
going to review this?

I also found the Eno/Wobble disc, and I will second e's recommendation.  On
a related note (though not too thislisty)  I see that Gyroscope has reissued
the Eno/Cluster collaborations.  An add in Option compares them to Music for
Airports.  Can someone (e?) recommend/review these to/for me?  (I seem to be
the "collaboration mode" this month).

what the hell?!? who would have ever thought that lush would stoop so

thought that they were like avant garde after seeing the covers for the

and since most record stores that would stock lush and rap cds would be
large enough to separate the two into their respective genres i think

I highly disagree (but then again that is very subjective). I think Cut the
Tree is one of TWP's best work. Their earlier stuff is probably more in that
vein than the newer stuff. Don't get me wrong though, I like the new stuff
too. The old stuff is very different and very varied. "The Burden of Mules" is
very "experimental". "The Legendary..." is very eclectic and is their best
work as far as I'm concerned. "Standing Up Straight" is much like cut the tree
really only a little better (of course "I am the Crime" is the most grandiose
song that I can think of.)
"Bird Wood Cage" sees hints of going "funky", very eclectic as well, excellent
album.
After that they changed styles completely "queer" and "funky little demons"
are very interesting in a way. I agree with whoever said they are the few
white boys who understand the word funk.

Anyway, just thought I'd share my inner self with whoever cares :)

In other words, a record with a black man on the cover signifies rap
music? If we're going to generalize about black men, I thought they were
thislisty, since AR Kane recorded for 4AD.

Maybe alex has a point. I myself bought Buffalo Tom's "Let Me Come Over"

aborigine on the cover. D00dz, wuz I suprized!!!

        Yeah, the cover struck me, too. I like it, it's pretty original.
Its nonabstractness is also kind of indicative of what the music is
like--mainly 'Not Shoegazing'.
        I bought Lovelife last night, and was pretty disappointed. I'm
not usually one to mind a bit of a style change (I'm one of those people
who like Catherine Wheel's "Happy Days"), but the truth is that at least
half of the songs on Lovelife are simply weak. The singles are pretty
good, as well as about three other songs, but the rest leave a LOT to be
desired. But I've only listened to it once.

I didn't like "Cut the Tree" either.  Bore-o-rama.  I'd say that the
first two albums are like that song, only good, fun, and innovative.
Then we have that album in the middle, Bird Wood Cage, which is like
Queer, only spiky & annoying & great.  It's probably my favourite TWP
album.  (I like Queer as well.)

It IS something of a concept for sure. I don't know how many of you out
there have that little 1984 24-pages full colour 4AD catalogue, but the
labels for 1980, 1981, 1982 and 1983 are shown there on separate pages: 1980
1 label, 1981 2 labels, 1982 3 labels and 1983 5 labels.
Let's call it mysterious, not pretentious.

I was hoping both the Brook-Indian/Pakistani collaborations would be more

I'm going to offer my time and resources to set up a MajorDomo list
dedicated
to the Defeverized sounds from Superfun, MI.  If we set it up, it'd be
very cool,
with web services and archiving and the like.

Another reason I'd like it at my site is so that we could have all the
HNIA
type things located in one place (not to upstage BluBelKnol, I know he too
is working on a web page, and don't want to leave him in the dust).  I'm
also
trying to get pages in the works for Time Stereo/Record Collector, but
that's
pending on Davn? (I think).

My question is, if I set up this list, will people use it?  I don't want
to
set it up to find one or two messages dribbling through, it'd be a waste
of
my time and resources (as well as my friends who'd be helping me set it up
on their machine).

If I hear a definative yes, I'll set it up this weekend, and will only

Why bash people over the head for buying a new lush single, saying they don't
like it, yet still buy the new album?  Singles are padded with b-sides which
usually precede the album to whet the appetites of fans (rabid or no) waiting
for the real lp.  In other words, the singles presumably will not be up to
par with the lp release, but this will probably *not* stop someone from
buying the lp itself.

I suspected as much after the interview with Kurt Heasley in AP a few months
ago, where he was praising The Monkees (or to be more precise, their
hired-gun songwriters)

Why do people hate her? Because her rage is FAKE. Maybe people outside
Canada aren't clued in to this, but imagine if Paula Abdul suddenly became
all angry and shouty in a calculated move to cash in on the fashionability
of such things, then you'd have an idea of how un-genuine and
alternative-by-numbers Alanis' image really is. I mean, she co-writes her
songs with someone who wrote stuff for Wilson Phillips!

Subject: Cheap 4AD CDs (UK only, alas)


HMV are having one of their "three for twenty quid" sales, only it's
three for twenty-one quid this time.  ALL the big name 4AD albums are
there - what looked like every album by the Cocteaus, Pixies, Muses,
Belly (even "King"), Breeders, DCD, Wolfgang Press, Kristin Hersh,
Lush, (didn't notice Pale Saints but I guess they are there), UVS.
Does this mean 4AD is planning a mid-price reissue campaign, or are HMV
selling these things for half their normal HMV price?  Bjork's "Post"
was there, too, which suggests it hasn't exactly been selling well.

I bought "Throwing Muses" (only Muses album I hadn't got on CD rather
than vinyl, given up waiting for them to do the right thing and put
"Chains Changed" on it), "Pod" (again, I have this on vinyl, but until
next payday vinyl is consigned to the DUSTBIN OF HISTORY as I'm not
going to risk plugging my dodgy old turntable into my nice new
amplifier), and "Rev" (I wasn't over-impressed with the accompanying
"Blood and Thunder" EP, but some people rave about this one so I
thought I'd give it a go).

Oh, and if you are into creepy pop songs about murder, emotional torment
and car crashes, try the Auteurs' "After Murder Park", recorded by Steve
Albini - I had written the Auteurs off as a second-rate band for some
reason, but this is superb - as if the Beatles had recorded "Revolver"
after overdosing on J G Ballard.

how childish... generally what I've come to expect from some of the posts on
the list lately anyway, just like the one about "Lush's sneaky advertising by
having a black man on the cover".

How disappointing...  time to move over to the Projekt list I suppose.

sort of like the british point-of-view by charging @$250 US (after the
exchange rate) for "This Rimy River" limited edition????

Considering the regular goes for $35-$60, I think that's quite
over-inflated...

Capitalism is world wide my friend, in case you hadn't noticed.  A tad bit
pretencious to believe it isn't.

Perhaps the person selling the "Mai..." for $43 needs to pay for his
"Rimy..."ltded some way.

Funny how the guy sold his Mai for $20 before his post even hit the List...
kinda tells you how much he lost on the steal...er um deal.

Case in point:  Lilliput was also a "FREE" promotional item... does that mean
it isn't worth more than $10???  Value is based on availability, and people
are willing to pay. Simple as that.
